"So hereafter we will know how to yield to the gods, and we will know how to honor the sons of Atreus. For they are rulers, so they must be obeyed: why not? For even terrible and mighty things yield to authority. Thus the snowy winter storms give way to fruitful summer, and the eternal circle of night understands how to kindle the light for white-horsed day."[2]
